Join us for a reading and conversation with Jazmine Linklater, who will be reading from her new book Figure a Motion (Guillemot Press, 2020). 

"Amongst other necessities—lyric grimoire, textile phenomenology, handbook for linguistic hope— this book is a utopian analysis of the pronoun she. What could the haptic pronoun become given the vigorous refusal of binarist projection? In these texts her buoyancy compels you to accommodate newly intricate potentials for a bodily thinking." — Lisa Robertson

Jazmine Linklater has published two previous pamphlets, Toward Passion According (Zarf, 2017) and Découper, Coller (Dock Road, 2018). She is a co-founder of the queer feminist collective No Matter and facilitates creative writing workshops at Manchester's Waterside Arts Centre. Jazmine works for Carcanet Press and T-Junction International Poetry Festival, and sits on the editorial board for Broken Sleep Books.
